“Dr. Chamberlain treated my trigger fingers with the highest quality of medical delivery I've ever experienced. His bedside manner is compassionate, complete, and extremely timely.

I would recommend Dr. Chamberlain to anyone seeking hand relief.” – Judith M.

“I had Dr. Chamberlain for my Carpel Tunnel syndrome and also to fix a trigger finger. Both surgeries were successful and done with precision. I had a very short recovery time and great guidance getting to the surgery. Dr. Chamberlain is knowledgeable, professional and is a great surgeon. Both of my surgeries were successful and continuing to have a great outcome.” – Phyllis N.

“I appreciate Dr. Chamberlain's cautious and non-invasive approach to my injured fingers, as opposed to immediate reconstructive surgery opined by other doctors. Dr. Chamberlain has an efficient demeanor, and at the same time took the time to address any issues I brought up. I am very grateful for a knowledgeable, caring doctor and staff. Check-in to exam room was also very efficient” – AJ

“Dr.Chamberlain did an excellent job surgically repairing my elbow. I had seen multiple doctors and had injections galore previously. Although surgery was not my preferred route at first, he did such a good job and I’m back to normal function with no pain. His bedside manner was extremely pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend him. And I’m a nurse with surgery experience. I am very happy with his care.” –Shelby B.
